British singer Ed Sheeran announced today the release of his fourth studio album, entitled Equals (Equals), for October 29. The artist himself confirmed it through a direct on Instagram this Thursday in which he also revealed that he himself is the author of «part» of the cover, where, in addition to the = symbol on a Pollockian red background, several butterflies are seen to symbolize a new life».

‘My 4th studio album ‘=‘ comes out October 29th, and is available to preorder today on all platforms, cd, vinyl and cassette. I started writing and recording this album June 2017. Its been a long, long process. I’ve been through love, loss, new life, grief and everything in between during the whole period of writing it, and I feel like it’s really a coming of age record. I’ve never been more proud of a body of work, or more excited/nervous for you all to hear it. The next song off of it is called Visiting Hours, which I finished for my friend Michael who sadly passed away this year. If you preorder the album you get this song with it, but it’s also on all platforms from now too. Lots more music to come, but for now I hope you are as excited as me for this album. ‘=‘ everywhere from October 29th x’ were the singer’s words.
